Batman has been one of the world’s most beloved superheroes since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Clad in his dark cowl and cape, he has captured the imagination of millions of fans with his single-minded pursuit of justice, making use of expert detective skills, high-tech crime-fighting gadgets, and an extensive network of sidekicks and partners. But why has he enjoyed such long-lived popularity as a character? And why have his actions so often caused debate among fans and philosophers? Batman and Ethics explores the concepts and contradictions of the ethical and moral code of the Dark Knight. From the logic behind his aversion to killing, to the implication of his use of torture, to the moral status of vigilantism in the pursuit of justice, Batman’s ethical precepts are compelling but often controversial. Focusing on the character-defining work of Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams in the early 1970s and ending with the launch of the New 52, Batman and Ethics explores the developments of Batman’s most troubling ethical dilemmas through some of his key storylines and suggests how the complexities and contradictions of his moral character can help us reconcile our own. A thought-provoking and entertaining journey through four decades of Batman’s struggles and triumphs, this book is a perfect way for readers to approach the complex questions of ethics and moral philosophy through one of the most popular canons in comic book history.
